Microsoft Power Apps
Build apps easily and quickly to digitise and automate your business processes
What is Microsoft Power Apps?
Microsoft Power Apps is a platform that gives the user a tool to easily build user-defined apps both for mobiles and the web. Power Apps can be used by experienced developers who want to develop apps from scratch; however, it is particularly designed for the non-technical user since the platform does not impose extensive requirements for understanding coding and app development. Power Apps comes with many built-in templates, which you can easily adapt to your own needs using an intuitive interface with drag-and-drop functions. Power Apps can also be used in cases where you already have an app that you want to customise for your own needs.
Power Apps is also easy to integrate with systems that your organisation is already using. This is because the platform comes with over 300 connectors. Among other things, you can integrate with SQL Servers, Microsoft Power BI, Salesforce, SharePoint and Excel, to name a few. This way, you can collect all your data in one place.
Why use Microsoft Power Apps?
Using Power Apps, you can automate manual and time-consuming business processes, move offline processes online, generally simplify processes in your organisation, etc. It is a cost-effective and agile solution compared to building an app from scratch.
Below, we have listed some of the biggest advantages of using Power Apps.
Access anywhere – any time
Power Apps is compatible with iOS, Android and Windows devices. This enables access to your apps while on the go as well as the ability to choose the exact working environment in which you prefer to work.
Get global Microsoft cloud functions
Power Apps is based on cloud, which means that you don’t have to design, install, buy and maintain your own network infrastructure yourself.
Everyone can build Power Apps
As mentioned, Power Apps has many templates available, which you can use as the foundation for your apps. With intuitive drag and drop functions, it is easy to adjust the templates, and you can add text fields, images, video, forms, etc. You thereby achieve a quick result which is tailored to your exact needs.
Share your Power Apps
When you have developed an app and saved it in the cloud, you can share it with others in your organisation. You control the access level yourself in your app – which users or groups that can use the app and who can make changes and share with additional people.
